Anyway, this past week I discovered a new TV show: Downton Abbey. I am in love! Have you ever felt that you were born in the wrong time period? I have my own Midnight in Paris moments just about every time I study a different era in history. I am a bona fide history nerd through and through. I quickly zipped through Season 1 (The story of an aristocratic British family and their servants spanning from the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 to the beginning of WWI in 1914) on Netflix and then dragged Brian with me this weekend in watching Season 2 here (The continuation follows the characters through wartime to peace from 1916 to the beginning of 1920.)
Saturday, my biggest accomplishment was probably running 3 miles uphill, outside, in 17 degree weather. State St. bring it on! But the most enjoyable part of the day was driving down to SLC with Brian to see The Vow with my sister Whitney. Fun Fact - The daughter of one of my colleagues at school was the producer! I definitely enjoyed the movie and am glad that I got to see it with two of my favorite people. Brian didn't even hate it, although some of the characters really annoyed him.
Sunday, after church, Brian and I had my family (Travis, Mayra, Whitney, and Alex) over for dinner and games. It's been awhile (Halloween) since we have got together, so it was a ton of fun to be all together again. We had my "famous" lasagne bolognese, homemade garlic breadsticks a la Brian, and a salad for dinner. Dessert was all Brian too. Don't they look delicious?

Monday, Brian and I used our Canyon's passes we got for Christmas to go skiing/snowboarding. It was my first time ever at the Canyon's, and only our second time skiing this season. It was a perfect sunny day, and we had a lot of fun exploring the resort together. :)

Thanks for sticking with me all the way to the end!
